Renew rear garden which has a dead lawn Landscaping
I commissioned Chris after seeing the work he'd done from referenced clients and had great confidence he would deliver a great result. We'd discussed the changes he'd make in general before work started but after preparing the ground he suggested making the shape of the lawn a semicircle. I agreed and am so pleased I did. I'm absolutely delighted with the result and the transformation is amazing – I now have a garden I want to enjoy with family and friends. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris.

Landscape small garden Landscaping
I love my new back garden! Landscaped by Chris, including a new patio, lawn, pathways, gravelled area and fencing. He immediately understood my plan and offered advice and suggestions, working through wind and rain until completion.
He is coming back to do more work on my crumbling drive.
Chris is an experienced and competent man in all aspects of gardening, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.

New patio with raised beds and paths Landscaping
Chris did a fantastic job for me in hard-landscaping the garden. His advice and guidance were invaluable and he found ways to make the project more cost effective without me asking for it. Above all this, he did what he said he would when he said he would - always keeping me informed. He's an absolute pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.

Chris really listened to what we wanted and executed it to the letter.
The drive is lovely and blends in with the house really well and the decking is brilliant.
His work is very professional and he has left the place clean and tidy.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would happily have him back for other work in the future.
Thanks Chris, Curtis and of course Barney (the dog).

Chris did a lovely job we are very happy with the result. The job was done in the time stated and he kept it very tidy throughout. It was a difficult job for him to access the garden as we live in a terrace but he did so efficiently and did not leave anything outside making sure everything was moved to the back in good time. He listened and took on board what it was we wanted. He is lovely man very polite, friendly and always smiling. I would strongly recommend him.

Total revamp Landscaping
Having been bitten in the past we had a deep distrust of tradesmen and so were very apprehensive of engaging anyone.
We needn't have been concerned. I explained to Chris from the outset my anxieties and he has been amazing.
Very good value for money and had great communication from the time we engaged him. He gave us a price and timeframe and pretty much stuck to it (only altered for things we added).
From the outset he has been polite, conscientious with an incredible work ethic.
Our project was huge - a pretty desolate garden has been transformed into an amazing sanctuary with decking, turf, slated areas, limestone walling and sandstone drive and paths.
He offered advice or suggestions where appropriate but was never pushy or insistent. Our garden is all that we visualised and more I can not thank him enough. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone for jobs big or small and in fact have passed his number on to a few colleagues already.

Chris is a total professional, completely reliable and a pleasure to have around.
He came up with some great ideas for my garden which needed to be terraced, walls and steps built in and then re-turfed. My garden has taken on a whole new identity - I absolutely love it. Thanks to Chris's hard work, building knowledge and attention to detail I now have the garden I was longing for.
I would thoroughly recommend him and am looking forward to having a further project carried out in early 2018.
Thank you so much Chris!

I could not be happier with the work that Chris carried out in my garden. My specification was a very low maintenance garden which he delivered. Although I changed my mind a couple of times he was always accommodating and the outcome is perfect. This was quite a big job and for me to be able to work with somebody was very important. I highly recommend Chris, and wish him well in the future, he has a lovely new puppy (which helps with the landscaping).

He arrived on the same day almost that I had put the ad up and gave us a very competitive quote within one working day, with different ideas for cheaper alternatives too.

Can heartily recommend Chris for your garden work. He is a one man band so he will turn up and do your work, not any sub contractors. We asked him to do some block paving for a driveway at the front of our house, move and extend a fence, and completely landscape the rear garden with a large patio, retaining brick wall, summerhouse base and installation of a pond. Chris gave us a competitive quote to include all work and materials. Communication with Chris was always prompt and easy. Turned up to commence work exactly when he said he would. Excellent workmanship and very tidy with minimal disruption. We were more than happy to leave him to work alone and love the finished garden. Chris also gave us some other ideas to supplement our own which have enhanced the finished product. Would certainly use Chris again.

garden clearance, removal of turf, new pathway Garden Maintenance
I found the company whilst browsing through MyBuilder for local gardeners. I was immediately impressed with the other comments left so posted the job up and invited Chris to quote.
First impressions of Chris were that he was very professional and understood requirements, as well as making a few recommendations. I was so happy in the way Chris proposed the work (time, cost, material) that I agreed there and then for him to do the work.
The work itself was very good, we had approx. 30m2 of patio laid to the rear and a new path and replacement step to the front. We also had approx. 25m2 of turf laid to the rear and plant borders created.
We are looking to get Chris back again for some further work not only on our own property, but also to quote for some work at my mum's house.
Thank you! Well recommended.

Chris has made an amazing transformation to our garden. Chris came to quote for our garden and straight away we felt at ease with his manner, he is very pragmatic and gives helpful pointers based on his experience yet listens to what you want as the client (some other landscapers seemed set with their ideas). We did not give Chris a detailed plan of what we wanted and he was not phased by this and just got on with it. He turned up every day, he is very hardworking (he had some back breaking work moving slabs, concrete blocks and materials yet just got on with it). The work has been completed to a very high standard and he is now coming back to work on our driveway and front garden and we look forward to working with him again. Would definitely recommend.

Garden Landscaping - hard & soft Landscaping
Chris embarked on a major front and back garden overhaul for our property in late November 2014. Right from our initial call, he instilled a sense of care and professionalism, and rare for a contractor - cared as much about making the most of our budget as we did.
He worked solidly to get our project delivered on time (often into the dark), was always proactive with solutions and alternatives when problems arose, and generally was an absolute pleasure to work with.
My husband and I are thrilled with our garden, and would be happy to recommend him to any new clients.

Chris was very thorough and professional in his work. Always on time to start the day he worked in all weathers and got the job done ahead of schedule. Chris made sure he understood what we wanted before commencing and came up with some ideas of his own which we were happy to include. He communicated well with us throughout and right up to when the job was completed and was happy to rectify and make some changes we wanted. I would recommend him highly to anyone who is looking for large patio areas to be laid and garden refurbishment work to be done.

We hired Chris to level and turf our back garden, create a small patio with a 5 course brick wall round it and replace a number of fence panels. We decided to ask Chris for a quote on the strength of the reviews on this site and when he arrived to look at the job we were instantly impressed with his polite professional manner and the fact that he seemed enthusiastic about the job (our garden was in a real mess due to us dumping lots of spoil and rubbish in it after a extensive 4 year house renovation). We were even more impressed when Chris kept to his word and got his quote back to us quickly and when he said he would, something a lot of tradesmen simply don't seem to bother to do (and hence I'm sure lose a lot of work as a result).
When Chris actually came to do the job he turned up when he said he would, worked very hard throughout the day and always tidied up before he went home even though we had no intention of trying to use the garden after he had gone home. The turf he supplied was great quality and the neatness of the work he did on the fencing and patio impressed us greatly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris, he is extremely hard working, cares about doing a good job and is a very pleasant chap to deal with.
ssim - 30th Apr, 2014 Positive feedback
The quote was REALLY competitively priced compared to the other 2 quotes we received. It is always a worry, that the person you have hired is going to do a decent job & I usually I prefer to go by a personal recommendation but Chris was instantly likeable when he come over to look at the job and we decided to take a chance... We were impressed with the quality of his work - and what was originally a 3 week job to transform one area of our garden turned into a 3 month full garden makeover! He turned up in all weathers and worked tirelessly, on his own, in some awful conditions. He listened patiently to my ideas, advised me on how best to achieve them within our fairly limited budget and we are SO IMPRESSED at the finished result. He did a proper job - not always just going for the easiest option as some tradesman do! I have already recommended him to some of my friends and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

14/02/2013 Patio. Chris has done an excellent job. He did lay slabs in our patio as well as in the back garden. The slabs that he provided were gorgeous and of very good quality. He was thorough and did not hesitate to ask my point of view about how I wanted things to be done exactly. The slabs were of different colors and shades so he made sure to select the slabs that I preferred and put them where I wanted them to be. He organized everything: the delivery of the slabs, the turf, the skip and did not hesitate to work even when it was snowing heavily under a biting wind. His price was very good. A good price for a hard-working man for an excellent job. Highly recommended.

I called Chris and explained that I had a garden that needed revamping. Chris came to view the job the following day and I explained what I needed. I wanted a deck that went the width of the house and some beds for putting pots on and some grass with a path through to the back gate. Chris advised me of the best materials and worked to my budget. He also showed me work he had completed for other customers to give me ideas. Chris was a competant tradesman and was polite with good time keeping and completed the job in the time quoted. He is very accomodating with your ideas and will advise to the best of his ability.He was also very tidy in his work. I would certainly recommend him to complete any work. Chris strength are vision for the completed project, experience of previous jobs, experience of materials available and best suited to the job, an ability to make you feel at ease and not sold to and reliable and honest.

Good standard of work. because he works by himself and therefore does not have to rely on other people. Worked hard on the job, which was a full landscape and ensured all was tidy afterwards. Was always punctual and a nice person to deal with and within relevant time-frames. Did have a few extra jobs which he dealt with in an efficient manner.
